I'm back. I had a lot of crocheting and quilting to do.
But I'm finally back to do what I love...Kumihimo.
I know I told you the story of how I got started doing Kumihimo. Well, I thought I'd show you my pride and joy in bead crochet. These were the first pieces I did using the smallest crochet hook available. It took me 3 days to sit and hand string the beads on. Since learning to kumihimo, I haven't done bead crochet and my fingertips couldn't be happier.

I get a better camera.
Now this is the first beaded Kumihimo piece I made. I missed placing a few beads which left some bare spots. So I will be doing it over this weekend. It took me 3 weeks to do the bead crochet. One week to learn how to start it, and 2 more weeks to finish it. It will only take me 3 days or less to finish the Kumihimo. Now which one would you prefer?
